“SensoryBox” co-created by Christopher Duthie

September 23 @ 12:00 am - October 3 @ 12:00 am EDT

$5 – $75

When was the last time you felt the first gentle brush of a butterfly kiss? Or the sticky sweet taste of maple syrup licked off your fingers after a pancake breakfast? Or how about the soft, warm hug of a fluffy blanket straight out of the dryer?

Explore the electric connection between our senses and the imagination with Ghost River Theatre’s “SensoryBox”. Blindfolded, and alongside the guiding voice of performer Mike Tan, uncover the mysterious contents of the box from the safety of your own home (or be one of twenty of the first audience members to join us in the theatre each night) and rediscover the importance of play.

Wrapped and delivered to your door, “SensoryBox” offers you an unboxing adventure through the tips of your fingers.
